For some reason I was thinking about that as I was leaving the office one night last week. The offices of Mawhinney & Co are adorned with dozens of historical law books containing reports of court cases dating back over a hundred and fifty years.
They are there for decorative purposes, but once in a while I pull one out and rumble through. And let me tell you. To dust off one of those old tomes and read what legal squabbles they were having generations ago is fascinating.
Anyway, that night as I was leaving, out of a sudden burst of curiosity I stopped, closed the door, and thought “I wonder if we’ve got anything here from 1918”.
I started delving and as luck would have it, we have several from 1918.
